This article from a no name hack, doesnt even deserve a response.

Too bad he waited NINE LONG YEARS for his team to make the playoffs only to see them score 1 meaningful goal at home. Sure they made the playoffs, but they still havent won a playoff game in 9 years and counting LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL...........

God, I cannot WAIT until I can take the train to a Devils game. I will gladly never drive to another Devils home game again. Never have to pay $10 for parking again, never have to walk friggin miles across other highways to get to and from my car again, never have to deal with Turnpie traffic again.

I grew up and lived my first 28 years in NJ, and I used to be a partial season ticket holder for a good part of Devils history until I moved away. I go to games every so often, but it's a 3-hour drive from Lancaster, PA. When I go, I usually swing by my family in South Brunswick, NJ and pick up others. I cannot wait until I can stay there and take a train up to Newark and see a game.

The Devils fan base is more Central Jersey than it is North Jersey. It may have been North Jersey in the beginning, but it's much more Central Jersey and the Shore now. Newark is so much more convenient to that part of the state.

Heh, good cuz I was just about to start dusting off some of my old maps, graphs and charts :P


Can't wait!

This location even makes it easier for me coming from Texas to go to a game. Get on the monorail at EWR, switch to NJ Transit and stop in Newark which is the next or second stop after the airport.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

So we can write Sammy down for 10-15 games the first season in Newark?

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Oh, baby, let's get Rutt's Hut rippers at the Newark Arena! :clap:

The Meadowlands is more convenient for me, but I'm definitely willing to give the new place a chance.

I'll absolutely go to more games in Newark. And if they cut out the loud music and noise, I'll buy season tix. :D

I think that if they do the pricing structure well in the new arena it will bring in a much younger crowd. The fans between the ages of 17-24, if they can grab tickets for $10-$15. With the amount of colleges in North Jersey, as well as the amount of high schools within reach of NJ Transit, it will be huge.

When you sit in the cheap seats at a baseball game, there are entire sections of kids that bought the $10 tickets. The Devils could capitalize on this.

I will go to way more games in Newark because I live within walking distance of an NJ Transit station!

Perhaps it's not finalized yet? Anyway, as skeeter mentioned earlier:

In a few weeks they'll have a virtual view of the inside with views from each seat.
